Jon & Joel recap the stellar stretch runs in the Wood Memorial (G1) and Santa Anita Derby (G1), and tell you how each race shook up the TCI Top 10. They also discuss scenarios with the all-important Kentucky Derby graded earnings standings, and why this 3-year-old crop may be one of the most exciting in years.
